Sheffield United moved a step closer to promotion to the Championship with an important 2-0 win over Millwall at Bramall Lane.

Jack O'Connell put the the League One leaders 1-0 up after 15 minutes, heading in a cross from John Fleck and United went on to control the majority of the half, roared on by another crowd of 20,000+ at the Lane.

After the break Kieron Freeman doubled the lead for United, finishing off beautifully after a fine move which ended with John Fleck teeing up the United right-back for his 10th goal of the campaign.

Chris Wilder's side slowed down a little after that and looked fairly comfortable in the remainder of the game, with Millwall not really looking like pulling their way back into it.

The victory took United seven points clear of second placed Bolton, though having played an extra game, and 13 points ahead of third-placed Fleetwood Town.
